Zhuang Hong Yi was born in the Sichuan province - China in 1962
he graduated from the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute and later from
the Minerva Academy of Visual Art and design in Gronigen.
Yi currently lives and works in the Netherlands but his connection
with his roots remains strong in his art.
The artworks on display represent all the major elements found in
his recent work, the flower and plant theme is influenced by his life
in the Netherlands, the choice of medium, rice paper, reflects his
oriental roots, he colours the paper with acrylic paints.
Each work slowly and delicately comes to life like a materialisation
of Ying and Yang and evolves into an original and wonderfully
colourful master piece.
Yi describes himself as an "urbanite" and his art represents his
optimism for urban life .His artworks demonstrate that renewal
and tradition can come together and live hand in hand.
Zhuang is collected by buyers worldwide, he has been selected to
participate in several International Biennale exhibitions several
times and his paintings can be seen in prestigious galleries worldwide.
